Islander Automatic Dive Watch with Solid-Link Bracelet, AR Sapphire Crystal, Luminous Ceramic Bezel Insert #ISL-02

Island Watch would like to introduce you to the new Islander dive watch. You will immediately notice that is has a very familiar 43mm case with an offset screw-down crown at 4:00. Thickness is 14mm and tip to tip it is a very wearable 46mm (i.e. looks big, but doesn't wear big on your wrist). Note that the lug ends are drilled for easier bracelet to strap changes. The case back has a rendering of Long Island on it along with the Islander name, Island Watch and 200 meter water resistance.

Inside the case is an NH36, 24-jewel automatic movement with 21,600 vibrations per hour. This self-winding movement supports hand winding and hacks (seconds hand stops when you pull out the crown). Power reserve is about 41 hours fully wound. The NH36 also has both a day and date wheel viewed at 3:00 on the dial.

The BLACK dial has SuperLuminova on the hands and hour makers and the Island Watch logo is luminous under 12:00. The 120-click uni-directional bezel has a scratch-resistant black (
diver marked) ceramic insert that is also treated with SuperLuminova for a maximum glow-in-the-dark experience when lights go out. It is quite bright and long lasting.

The BLACK dial has enhanced visibility due to the use of an anti-reflective flat sapphire crystal that also guards against scratches. The anti-reflective coating is on the underside of the sapphire and it imparts a bluish hue at some viewing angles. (the dial is black.)

And, lastly you get a beefy bracelet with solid links, solid end links and a dual push-button flip lock deployant clasp with three position micro-adjustment. For sizing the bracelet, you will find screws are used for removing bracelet links instead of pins.

NOTE: The Islander dive and dual-time watch is compatible with aftermarket parts available at Island Watch (and elsewhere) for the SKX007 models, such as crystals, bezels, inserts, chapter rings, dials, hands, bracelets, etc.

5 of 5 A Dressed-Up, Upgraded SKX For Less! September 21, 2020
Reviewer: Alex from Madison, WI United States  
This watch was my first automatic, and I must say that I am very happy with it. I'm sure you know all about the fantastic features from other reviews, so I will keep this brief by saying that I have only one real complaint: the  outside of the clasp on the bracelet has a bit of an edge and will scratch things that it rubs against - but this is easily replaced. That's it! Literally everything else is perfect, or at the very least its something that is a question of taste, not quality. Great work Mark!

5 of 5 Best $300 or Under Dive Watch On The Market September 17, 2020
Reviewer: Bobby Cox from Anderson, SC United States  
The watch is excellent.  I won’t repeat the extensive spec sheet but the sum of the parts is great.  No issues so far and keeping excellent time.  Can’t recommend enough for a sports watch in this price range. The only nitpick I have is the case back is a bit taller than the SKX, but when on the bracelet it’s not noticeable.  The best part of all is Marc’s excellent customer service, best in class.

5 of 5 Great Watch! September 4, 2020
Reviewer: Scott from Castalian Springs, TN United States  
If you are on the fence about this watch, don't be. I have Rolex GMT and Omega Planet Ocean, which are both fantastic time pieces.  While the Islander is not on the level with those, this watch is a fantastic value, very well made, and looks great. Time keeping is very good and components are good quality. When friends ask what is costs they do not believe me.  Beats comparative Seiko hands down.  Would not hesitate at all to buy another and have recommended this to many friends.
Well done, Mark!

5 of 5 ISL-02 August 12, 2020
Reviewer: Greg Stenslokken from LaVista, NE United States  
First off I would like to thank Random Rob via his YouTube video "Islander automatic dive watch (skx we all wanted Seiko to build)". Watch the video. My watch was on order in less than an hour after I watched it. And it was luck, I stumbled on that video researching dive watches. This watch is everything you are looking for. The NH36 w/Hack, Sapphire crystal and ceramic bezel. It is truly a work of art and I can't stop staring at it. Mark knocked it out of the park and I want to thank him for taking a chance on this. The watch market is tough and as long as he keeps creating watches of this caliber he will do well. I will definitely be making more purchases in the future.

5 of 5 Best watch for the price August 8, 2020
Reviewer: Sixkiller2121 from Boise, ID United States  
I've gotten this beauty 3 weeks ago and it's an amazing watch for the price. I was leaning towards skx007 and I looked at Islander watches and the #ISL-2 and many other caught my eye and pulled the trigger on it and happy I did. This is like an upgraded version of skx007 for $300 is a steal 👌 to me at least, and hopefully more to come down the line
